Frist thank you for everyone who has been creating this exellent validating

Allthought there is some little confusing issue in it:

When you use the
to validate some page, which has no errors, you receive the results

    <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"><img border="0"
        alt="Valid HTML 4.01!" height="31" width="88"></a>

Then you add the above HTML to your page, and go to
to check the same page, which now has the "valid html"-logo in it, you get
following error message from linkchecker:
